Children with disabilities.
"Children with disabilities" means children
between the ages of 3 and 21 for whom it is determined, through definitions
described in the Illinois Rules and Regulations to Govern the Organization
and Administration of Special Education, that special education services
are needed. An eligible student who requires continued public school educational experience to facilitate his or her successful transition and integration into adult life is eligible for such services through age 21, inclusive, which, for purposes of this Article, means the day before the student's 22nd birthday. An individualized education program must be written and agreed
upon by appropriate school personnel and parents or their representatives
for any child receiving special education.
